YPP Weekend Blockades, December 17-18: Mr. Owl, What Did This Recent Update Do?
Sat 2016-12-17 13:23:15 (in context)

It's Saturday and the Puzzle Pirates blockade schedule is underway. I'm jobbing on the Emerald Ocean, where Illusion just moved one ship's worth of volunteers from the Aimuari to the Armstrong competition--which isn't to say they aren't pushing their suit at Aimuari, mind.

If you're not into the blockade scene and prefer old-school pillaging, you'll be happy to hear that the latter bears an extra reward this month. Complete 30 sea battles and you'll earn your December 2016 Seal o' Piracy.

Only other news I've got is, my YPP client updated itself this morning, and I'm not quite sure why. Since the official Releases page on Yppedia hasn't been updated in months, the world may simply never know.

Standard reminders: Schedule is given in Pirate Time, or U.S. Pacific. Player flags link to Yoweb information pages; Brigand King Flags link to Yppedia Brigand King pages. BK amassed power given in parenthetical numbers, like so: (14). For more info about jobbing contacts, jobber pay, and Event Blockade battle board configuration, check the Blockade tab of your ocean's Notice Board. To get hired, apply under the Voyages tab.
